  • To determine compliance with Bank Rules and Procedures’ basic principles of economy, efficiency and transparency

  • To assess internal control systems and attendant risks

  • To use those national procurement procedures and documents, that are found acceptable, for NCB contracts financed by the Bank, in accordance with Clause 3.3 of the Rules.

THE NCB ASSESSMENT PROCESS

  • Review of country background legal and regulatory framework;

  • Description of country bidding procedures (ICB,NCB, other modes);

  • Examination of country NCB documents for Goods and Works;

  • Identification of deviations from Banks Rules for Procurement and from Bank’s SBDs;

  • Assessment of Fiduciary Risk (General Environment, Government Controls, Fraud, Corruption and Complaint Mechanisms);

  • Conclusions on Acceptability of Country NCB Procedures; and

  • Recommended Action Plan for filling any gaps found.

  • Country NCB Procedures not Acceptable because of Major Deviations: Recommendation to use Bank procedures and SBDs while procurement laws/regulations and bidding documents are being amended or developed.
